Meet the 1503 Property Group Team!

Our mission is to ensure our client’s best interests always come first.

Our founders, Jill & Ruth, are go-getters who know that when professionals collaborate, they can achieve more for their clients. We are a business that raises the bar and sets an example; a company that embodies leadership and excellence in every interaction.

We know how to connect the dots and ensure that all our clients and customers benefit from the network we have established and the loyalty we have earned.

Leveraging the most emergent marketing strategies and technology, 1503 Property Group is more than just a real estate brokerage; it is a partnership committed to connecting our community.

By knowing that every deal made is a win for the team as a whole we base every action and decision on what’s best for:

  1. Our Clients and Customers
  2. Our Company as a whole
  3. Our individual team members

Our Values are simple and they are EVERYTHING:

We seek to listen and understand so that we can respond in a proactive and targeted way.  We persevere to truly understand our clients’ needs in order to deliver maximum value.

We know that we cannot be all things to all people, therefore a team approach is the only effective way to ensure client needs are ALWAYS met, 100% or the time.  We’ve built a team that understands each other and is able to collaborate effectively in order to best serve our clients. From marketing to showing to staging your property, to financial and transactional coordination, we have the right people in the right roles.

We are driven to deliver RESULTS and we know that sometimes getting a deal across the line requires out of the box thinking, big asks and even bigger lifts… we are here to work for you!  Working with urgency, innovation and passion we excel in all markets, particularly fast paced markets, where timing is everything. We won’t sleep until we’ve executed for our clients.

Execution is everything.  We take the time to fully understand our clients’ goals, create a plan for how to achieve those goals and we EXECUTE, always.  We don’t believe in big talk we believe in big action.  We are accountable, all the time, in all ways.

We lead by example, with integrity, at the core of every decision and interaction.  Our role as a fiduciary is the most important role we have, as your representative we promise honesty and full transparency at all times.  This is core to what we do and core to who we are.

Our Vision is to be recognized as the most distinguished brokerage in the Cayman Islands providing OUTSTANDING customer service, 100% of the time.
